Hike Turkey Creek on Saturday

Let's hike on Saturday.
Turkey Creek is 2.5 miles long and crosses the water several times. Wear shoes that can get wet and bring a bottle of water. The group will set the pace.
This is an off leash park so expect to pass many dogs.

From Mopac go west on 2222, cross under 360 and then take a left on City Park Rd, proceed quite a ways on City Park Rd following signs toward Emma Long. Just after you go over the bridge crossing Turkey Creek the trail parking lot will be on the right. If you have gone to the actual pay entrace to Emma Long - you will have gone too far.

I will be the girl in the green shirt waiting for you.

    For everyone passed me this morning and didn't stop to pick me up :(

    Haha, I ran out of gas just after the corner of Loop 360 on RM2222. It was my first time in my life to run out of gas, because the gas gauge was working sharp until this morning it was pointing at 1/4. lol


    It was quite a story after that. I walked 4 miles up hill (this count as a hike). The street was not a pedestrian friendly at all. I had to fight cars.
    Had some weird, funny, and angry moments with passing cars.

    I also found an iPhone in a critical conditions :)
    I think it probably dropped down from a biker or something like that. It had suffered a few hits and cars ran over it, but still breathing. In the way back a fire fighter truck picked me up :) It was fun to get a ride with them. I wish I had my camera with me. It was my first time to ride one or even looking inside of it.

    What a great welcoming Austin. I had a great adventure on my first morning in Austin (I just got here Friday afternoon).

    When you say water crossing, do you mean knee deep or just a rock to rock kind of crossing?

    OK - for the record, Elana is the organizer for this one, I may or may not be wearing a green shirt but other specifics show me not to be the one who wrote the hike description. For one thing, 9 am?
